" I installed Firefox 3 and plugged in a Pioneer external DVD recorder, and Windows 7 kept crashing and restarting my PC every few seconds. Windows couldn't figure out automatically what the problem was, but I unplugged the drive and deleted Firefox, and now everything's peachy. I suspect the culprit was just the drive, but I haven't tried reinstalling Firefox yet.
Also, when the OS kept crashing, I finally tried to restore to an earlier, stable version of Windows 7. The program ran and ran, and eventually said the restore feature wasn't working. But when I restarted, it had successfully restored.
I played with Paint and Wordpad and a few of the other basic apps, and they all seemed functional. Solitaire still works!
Overall, Windows 7 seems like a decent OS. If you've been clinging to Windows XP until Microsoft releases a streamlined, fast operating system that doesn't require high-end hardware to shine (I installed on middle-age PC with an AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 2.4 Ghz processor, two gigs of RAM, and ATI 9800XT AGP video card) then 7 might be your lucky number"
